Was this Quest Removed?[]

I have never done this quest, and every time I used to talk to him, (Farmer Dirk) he would say to come back with a friend. I did that and he would not give the quest. What did I do wrong? -Lefick

Not enough explanation. Is your character foreign? Which Farmer Dirk? etc. --Kale Ironfist 21:07, 31 July 2007 (CDT)

No reward[]

Is this true? I've never been able to do this quest, since no one parties in pre, so I can't check it myself... but I am pretty sure there is some reward, else what would be the point? Entropy Sig.jpg (T/C) 00:34, 25 March 2009 (UTC)

Unless they've changed it in the last 2 months when I left pre-searing, you still receive 25 gold for doing this "quest." It's difficult to find every one of the hogs, and it's not obvious at first that doing anything with them would give you a reward, but talking to Dirk afterward does give you the money. I'll test it on my other pre character within the week --Raj4h 05:14, 25 March 2009 (UTC)
After some quick testing it seems that there are three iterations of the positioning of Farmer Dirk and his hogs. The one I'm calling the "first" iteration is when he and his hogs are both outside the pen, seen here:Dirk Hogs outside.jpg. If this is the case, talking to him will result in this dialogue:Dirk Dialogue.jpg After completing the quest a quest marker (Dirk Quest Marker.jpg) appears and he gives you your reward:Dirk Reward.jpg. The next time you zone ("second" iteration), both Farmer Dirk and his hogs are inside the pen: Dirk Hogs inside.jpg (presumably because you "just" rounded them up). The next time you zone, the "third" iteration has Farmer Dirk inside the pen and his hogs outside (seen here:Dirk Hogs split.jpg). Apparently Farmer Dirk isn't that great at farming because the next time you zone he and his hogs have returned to their positions in iteration one. It appears that only during the "first" iteration can you receive and complete the quest.
I'm a little new, so if you can clean this up that would be great. I can re-host images on imageshack if they should be external links instead. --Raj4h 06:18, 25 March 2009 (UTC)
